  • Administer RPAS functions using both client-based and command line utilities.

Benefits to You

Better understand the configuration options so that you can make improved decisions duration your implementation. Leverage the best practice suggestions for working with the RPAS Server, Fusion Client and configuration tools to better optimize implementation efficiency.

Explore RPAS Tools

Once an RPAS application is built and in production, its day-to-day functionality is maintained by the RPAS Administrator. This course is designed to provide a comprehensive look at the many tools and utilities used by the Administrator for installing, maintaining and troubleshooting an RPAS application domain. Taking this course will also help you explore the configuration of the Activity Task Flow, which is required when using the RPAS Fusion Client.
